Querying Protocol

Here's a quick question--what's the protocol on ongoing queries after a partial's been requested? My guess is that it's probably fine, since there's no request for exclusivity, but it feels a little different than simultaneous queries.

So one agent requested a partial, and I still have outstanding queries on the book. If one of them asks for a partial too, I can send it (so long as they don't need exclusivity.) Can I reasonably keep querying new agents, or ought I to give the one agent who requested a partial at least a week or so before I send out more queries? (In an ideal world, an agent would get to the story in a week or so. This particular agent is actually supposed to be pretty good on turnaround times, so I'm hopeful.)
